FREDRICKSBURG, Va. -- Domino's Pizza driver Blake Clark celebrates Halloween by delivering a little excitement with every run.

According to the Free Lance-Star, Clark, a 44-year-old Fredericksburg resident, has delivered pizzas for the past three years dressed as Count Ghoulstein (a character combination of Frankenstein and Tom Cruise's character in the movie "Interview with the Vampire") in the days drawing up to Halloween.

"I love bringing excitement to both the kids and adults," Clark said.

Rhyan Powell, 1, of Spotsylvania, was frightened when Clark made a delivery to her home on Oct. 25. Her grandmother, Sharon Grantz, who works with Clark, decided to startle and entertain her three grandchildren on her day off.

Rhyan immediately burst into tears when Count Ghoulstein arrived.

Her older brother, 6-year-old Bryce Grantz, knew Clark would be in costume and told his brother, Hunter.

"It's great that he does this," Sharon Grantz said.

Other customers agreed.

Mary Helen Russell, who was visiting family in Spotsylvania from California, was caught off guard when she opened the door and saw Count Ghoulstein on her doorstep. Her 3-year-old daughter, Lindsey, also was surprised, and cautiously took Clark's goody bag filled with candy and monster games.

"I was shocked to see him, but it's actually really cool and funny," Russell said.

Count Ghoulstein almost didn't appear this year as Clark considered postponing the stunt because of community concern over the recent sniper attacks in the state.

Hoping the sniper would be caught, Clark reserved his costume anyway on Oct. 21 -- four days before two sniper suspects were arrested.

"I decided to do it anyway, even if the sniper continued to do his reign of terror," he said. "I feel I'm more needed now than before."
